Kinfolk Appoints VOCAL NYC to Lead PR, and Releases an Extended Menswear Collection for AW16.
The creators of thoughtfully elegant lifestyle and product experiences, Kinfolk today announces the coming release of their Autumn/ Winter 2016 apparel collection. Melding a range of casual outerwear and knitwear along with iconic formal pieces, the Good Times International collection incorporates two capsule collaborations with La Paz (confirm link) and Cockpit USA for an unexpected contrast of styles that find harmony in astute design.
Kinfolk’s Good Times International release for AW16 draws inspiration from the terrifying and gritty play land of 1970’s New York, celebrating the fever pitch of culture and expression that would define the city’s future. The collection utilizes a muted yet crisp color palate that stays very true to New York classic fall imageries, creating a cohesive and functional range of garments that can be dressed both up and down. Key pieces fronting the collection include: the B10 Bomber jacket, a classic reenvisioned for today’s smart dresser; the Aspen Fleece, a hybrid item inspired by an oversize rugby shirt and the classic Patagonia pullover; the Baltimore four-pocket jacket, inspired by a vintage military piece we found during our design process, and is the perfect mix of a CPO military overshirt and a cotton coach jacket. Need a good summary to wrap collection.
Beginning with the release of their latest menswear collection, Kinfolk has engaged New York-based PR and Communications specialist agency VOCAL. “I’ve kept an admiring eye on Kinfolks movements over the years, and have always been a fan,” informs Sarah Bronilla, founder and CEO of VOCAL. “We’re very proud and excited to be formerly working with Kinfolk, and look forward to a lot of fun and success ahead.”
Born in 2008 as a collective from New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo, Kinfolk initiatives grow from the collection of locations the brand has established – the communal design studio in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg, Kinfolk 90; their culinary and cocktail nightspot in Tokyo, Kinfolk Lounge; the bar and cocktail club that has grown into a multiuse creative space, Kinfolk 94; and, of course, The Kinfolk Store that has become one of the city’s most notable menswear boutiques.
Kinfolk apparel is available at their flagship storefront at 94 Wythe Ave. Brooklyn, NY
